Day 17: Transatlantic Passage

Atlantic Ocean---Where the heck did the wind go? We started out this wind and making 3 knots. It's painful. Now we are on countdown. Especially with night watches: only two more to go. We are seeing cargo ships now so being alert on watch is really important.

I wonder if I will be "land sick"? I can't wait to step ashore.

Video Dairy Day 17: "Hi, this is Edee Dalke on Sailing Yacht Juno and this is day 17 of our transatlantic crossing and things have turned a little melancholy because the wind has completely died we're going about 3 knots so it's sort of anticlimactic. We only have about 80 miles to go and 2 night watches left.  So that means we have so far done in total  when we get there 34 night watches. 34 times we've crawled out of bed in the middle of the night. 34 times we have stood watch for 2 hours...and that's one thing I wont miss. But tomorrow, we get to Barbados."
